As winter comes to a close and we welcome spring, we at the Madison County Sheriff’s Office remember that spring is a great time in our community – a new baseball season begins, spring break is approaching, and graduation draws near for our students. We enjoy celebrating these good times in our community.
We want to remind you that with the warmer weather, children may be playing near our county roads. Please take extra caution and slow down when driving through residential neighborhoods. And remember, children learn by watching us. If you're traveling with a child, please model good driving habits, including:
- Wear your seat belt.
- Obey the speed limit.
- Slow near schools and neighborhoods (and explain why this is important)
- Do not text while driving.
- Make sure children are in the correct car seat.

Thank you for keeping our roads and our citizens safe, and we look forward to the great times that spring will bring!
